GOT IT. SHE'S GETTING OLD Madonna Madonna will be 50 years old in a few weeks, and the Internet is horrified that she sometimes looks like a woman in her mid-40s. The thing is, blogs and message boards are populated by 26-year-olds who have never seen a person older than 40 except their parents, and parents look old to everyone. The gays on magical message board Datalounge are of mixed opinion, but there is definitely a large contingent who believe that "At some point, a woman has to make a choice between her face and her body" and that "She's just old, at her age the flesh slides off the bone like a well-cooked chicken." Ha, stick around, kiddo!
